When my girls were little, it was the last part of August when we took first-day-of-school pictures. (Okay, let's be honest. I didn't take any.)
Now, some area schools began as early as August 4th. What's up with that?
Combining the dog-days of summer with new jeans and back-packs? Mercy!
Anyway, 2017 is a big year in our family because the twins started Pre-Kindergarten. Say it isn't so!
They are beyond excited. I'm wondering next August if they will feel the same ...
I have to share a cute story regarding filling out the forms for school. My daughter stated one of the questions the school asked about the twins: What do they want to be when they grow up?
I am still not 100% sure what I want to do when I grow up. They expect a three year-old to know?
So during dinner, Janae asked Baylee what she wanted to be when she grew up.
Immediately, Baylee said, "A bee."
Chuckling, we all exclaimed, "A bee!"
Baylee, taking a drink of her juice, said, "Yeah."
Her mom says, "What does a bee do?"
Baylee replied matter-of-factly: "They eat honey and fly."
Sounds like fun.
Meanwhile, Brody was busily shoveling in his food. When asked what he wanted to be, he looked up frowning.
"I'm eating right now."
Later, on the question was repeated to Brody. His response? "I'm playing right now."
Obviously, this is a subject he does not want to discuss. Janae answered the blank on Brody's form, "Nothing."
I've an idea this is going to be an interesting fall ... we've never had twins go to school before ...
